I'll admit, I had to look Mumford up - it's hard to imagine a similar film today just dropping in the name of a 'noted urbanist' or other academic like that.

I also found it odd that they went to all that trouble with the opening song, yet had no incidental music in the rest of it.

Mumford was very influential while he was alive; but today he's hardly known at all. As for the music, I wonder if they ran out of money before they could put in a music track. So many films of this type have such banal music that it's a relief to have silence when the narrator isn't talking.
